Woody debris is a vital and abundant component of forest ecosystems where it plays several paramount roles from local to global scale, being a key contributor to forest biodiversity and important ecosystem functions. Of course, these are all related to two important factors, that is, the woody debris traits and its decomposition. My focus is on determining the differences in functional traits (including bark and wood) among different (gymnosperm) tree species and disentangling the effects of these traits on woody debris decomposition and its associated abundance and composition of dead wood fauna. I will investigate these relationships in the “tree cemetery” experiment Loglife in the Netherlands.
